As BB readers know, in the 18th and 19th century, very special books were sometimes bound in human skin. Apparently, one such volume was found on the street in Leeds, England. It's a 300-year-old ledger written mainly in French. According to the BBC, police say that might have been tossed after a burglary. Link
